#1. Karl and Freud - [00:00:00]
Karl is supposed to share what he learned about Sigmund Freud, but he didnâ€™t bother because it wasnâ€™t interesting enough. He didnâ€™t search for information about his theories or biography; instead he tried to find famous quotes. The only thing Karl learned from Freud is that you should drink milk all your life.
#2. Flogging a Dead Horse - [00:02:50]
Steve is shocked that Karl is allowed to vote, though Karl regrets voting because he got jury duty. Karl doesnâ€™t think votes matter since they donâ€™t change anything. Karlâ€™s father is tired of hearing about global warming. Karl thinks the world is just getting old. Ricky asks Karl what he thinks the phrase â€œflogging a dead horseâ€ means. Karl understands the phrase, but he thinks it matters what the horse has done to you.
#3. Harry the Housefly - [00:05:55]
Ricky has more animal facts for Karl; apparently sharks are immune to cancer and stroking a spider can cause its hair to fall out. Karl's Mam stroked a bee once and â€œit loved it.â€ They also had a pet fly called Harry the Housefly. Ricky and Steve question whether it was the same fly every day. Karl heard that a fly had bad eyesight and so they made glasses for it. Ricky translates the story; it was a demonstration of technology to show that they can make glasses so small they can fit on a fly. Karl prefers to believe they are making glasses for flies. Karl has heard about the use of hypnosis instead of anaesthesia for surgery. Karl doesnâ€™t see the point since thereâ€™s nothing wrong with the injections.
#4. Noahâ€™s Ark - [00:13:31]
Ricky and Karl heard a spurious fact about coconut milk being used as plasma. Karl believes it but Ricky and Steve do not. Ricky questions Karl about Noahâ€™s Ark and the validity of getting two of every species on a boat. Karl thinks it is possible if they were near a zoo and all the animals pitched in to help.
#5. Suzanneâ€™s Birthday - [00:17:37]
Itâ€™s time to read from Karlâ€™s diary again. Karl took Suzanne to Cotswolds for her birthday; they walked around the carpark, Karl ate all the biscuits, and they went to a graveyard to see how old the dead people were. Someone emailed in to ask Karl how to keep a woman happy. Karl doesnâ€™t think you should go out of your way to please her too much.
#6. Swimming Steve - [00:23:37]
Steve has been swimming more lately but hasnâ€™t mastered the front crawl. At a local pool he saw a bloke who was really good at it. He told this bloke that he had been watching him and thought he was really good and he asked him to watch his stroke to give him advice. Ricky thinks this is a strange thing to say to a stranger. It was an awkward situation as Steve was wearing a speedo and prescription goggles.
#7. Same Cook - [00:25:58]
More Rockbusters, Karl gives answers for the previous week and tries to help Ricky and Steve work them out. Both Steve and Ricky are embarrassed by this quiz, but Karl still stubbornly refuses to do Monkey News.
